BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Evil Twin Brewing
New York, United States
eviltwin.dk

Style: American Double / Imperial Stout

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 11.50%

Availability: Rotating

Notes / Commercial Description:
The Roman Empire had a certain "je ne sais quoi" - festive food culture, extravagant architecture, and spectacular live entertainment. Some might argue the Emperors were brutal, mad, and hungry for power, and the people vain when taking baths and working out all day. Listen - that's still all part of the secret Imperial ingredient - keep it cool, clean, confident, arrogant, and flamboyant. Forza Imperiale.

My bottle was over a year old. Coffee was non existent and it was very sweet. I've had it fresh and it was excellent. Live and learn

WOW!! The price tag is steep on this one ($16.99 for a bomber). Strong boozy notes with a roasted malt backbone. A hint of coffee aftertaste and some raisin and dark candied fruit flavors as well. Not bad, but for the price this is a one time purchase.

Very dark, almost black, in color. Smell and taste are very good and similar to other quality imperial stouts. A little heavy, as befits a stout.

Pitch black with no highlights. Smells of dark fruits, roasted malt, and coffee. Fairly complex. Raisin and fig flavors hold their own against a heavy wash of roasted malt and coffee flavors. The beer feels soft and smooth with a low level of carbonation. A spicy, roasty finish helps temper the high alcohol. A richly flavored sipper with above average complexity.
